About Ardelyx, Inc.

Ardelyx is focused on enhancing the care and well-being of underserved patients with gastrointestinal (GI) and cardiorenal diseases by using the gut as the gateway to developing high-quality therapeutics. The company has pioneered the development of small molecule therapeutics that act predominantly in the GI tract, thereby avoiding potential negative side effects on the rest of the body. Ardelyx's platform integrates technology that emulates the human GI tract with its gut-restricted chemistry capabilities allowing for the development of optimized small molecules in a rapid and cost-efficient manner. Using its platform, Ardelyx has discovered and developed multiple portfolios of unique, gut-targeted therapeutics. The company's GI portfolio is led by tenapanor, which is in Phase 3 development for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C), and RDX8940, a unique TGR5 agonist that is approaching Phase 1 development. Ardelyx's cardiorenal portfolio includes the Phase 3 development of tenapanor for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on dialysis, and RDX7675, in Phase 3 development for the treatment of patients with hyperkalemia, or high potassium, a problem prevalent in people with kidney and/or heart disease. The company is also advancing several research programs in its GI and cardiorenal portfolios. For more information, please visit
